To Patients and Friends of Chris Bird Dental Practice,

COVID-19 UPDATE (03/06/20)

Some of you may have seen during the Government briefing on 28th May the announcement that dental practices can re-open from the 8th June. We are incredibly pleased and excited to have been given the green light to start seeing our patients again after a long 10-week restriction to our services.

We have been working extremely hard behind the scenes to ensure that we are able to follow the latest guidance and we will only be reopening when we are satisfied that we have all the necessary processes, procedures and personal protective equipment in place to ensure your safety.

However, we must stress that it will not be business as usual straight away. There will be many changes in the way we need to work, and it may still be a little while before we can recommence routine dentistry.

We ask that you do not call the practice yet to try and make an appointment, though we are still available for advice and in case of emergencies.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience and bearing with us while we work through all we have to do to ensure the safety of staff and visitors to the practice.

Thank you for your support, and stay safe,

The Team at Chris Bird Dental Care

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you accepting new patients?

Yes, we are very happy to see patients that are new to our practice and those that may have attended in the past. In order to register for our service simply arrange an appointment for your first consultation with one of our dentists. We will require a deposit for your first booking which may be paid over the telephone by credit card. This amount will be credited to your account towards your treatment costs. Should you fail to attend the appointment the deposit credit will cover the fail charge.
We will ask you to complete a medical history form so it is useful to bring along an up to date list of any medication. 

How much will it cost?

Our list of private fees are included in the Price Guide on our website. For a first consultation the fee is £60. In addition, should x-rays of the teeth and mouth be required at this first visit a further charge of £20 will be made for two small x-rays. Occasionally a large full mouth x-ray is needed at the first consultation, the cost of this is £40. Fees are collected as they fall due at the time of the appointment. We accept most credit/debit cards (excluding American Express), we also accept cash payments but not cheques.
Once a dental examination has been carried out we will provide a full, detailed written estimate of your treatment plan.

What about children?

We have the CBirdies Tooth Care Club available for our junior patients to help them understand how to look after their teeth. They can join the scheme free of charge once they have received their free NHS dental examination with one of our dentists.

How do I book an appointment?

You can book over the telephone or call at the practice in person. You may wish to arrange a free, no obligation chat with one of our qualified dental nurses before booking a consultation with the dentist. Our dental nurses can provide answers on all aspects of our service and what each treatment type involves.

What happens if I need to cancel an appointment?

Please contact us to cancel as soon as possible, we require 24 hours notice to avoid a cancellation charge. For cancellations on the day we will not make a charge if you contact us before 10:00am on the day of the appointment.

What should I do in an emergency?

Please contact the practice as soon as possible, appointments are available on the day if the practice is open.

On weekends and bank holidays NHS patients should telephone the NHS helpline on 111.

Details of our emergency service for private patients will be available on our telephone answering service. A dentist is usually available on his/her mobile number to offer advice in emergencies. He/she will open the practice, if necessary, where emergency dental treatment is required. When they are not available there will be alternative arrangements in place i.e. another local dental practice will be covering emergencies on our behalf.

Do you have any payment plans?

Yes, we have a Dental Care Plan membership scheme which you can join anytime after the first consultation. Once the scheme has started you will receive 20% discount on your dental treatment (excluding implants which are discounted by 10% within the scheme).
The membership costs £12.95 per month and includes two dental examinations and two hygiene visits per year plus several other benefits.
